    When I first saw an ad for the Amazon Echo I was shocked that anyone would want that intrusive device in their home. It certainly wouldn’t be coming into our home. Well, last night my Kindle lite up while I was watching TV and started downloading a new software update (BTW, how does it do that when the internet isn’t connected?). What shocked me was the minute it finished and I woke the kindle up, a screen popped up telling me to ‘connect’ to Alexa!! What the hell??!! 😯 I hit the ‘Exit’ button immediately, went to the home screen, and there was my brand new, spy ready Alexa app.

    For those not familiar with the dangers of this app, watch this short video. My life may be squeaky clean but I still don’t want my privacy invaded.
